TP53 (p53) stimulates the transcription of BBC3 (PUMA) (p53 upregulated modulator of apoptosis) (Nakano and Vousden 2001). The transcription of BBC3 is also stimulated by p53 family members TP63 (p63) and TP73 (p73) (Bergamaschi et al. 2004, Patel et al. 2008). ASPP proteins PPP1R13B (ASPP1) and TP53BP2 (ASPP2) form a complex with p53 family members and enhance transcriptional activation of BBC3 (Bergamaschi et al. 2004, Patel et al. 2008, Wilson et al. 2013).
